Abstract: The present article presents the results of an investigation carried out by the joint efforts of Vilnius University and London University College within the international research project “Youth Emigration” supported by the British Academy. 2394 students from the main Lithuanian universities were interviewed. The object of the investigation was to determine the main causes that motivate emigration in search of employment. The purpose of the investigation was to find out which measures might help reduce youth emigration rates. The investigation revealed that more than 30% of Lithuanian university students have plans to emigrate looking for a job after graduation. A desire to earn more than in Lithuania was indicated as the main cause of emigration. Other causes were: self-realization; a desire to obtain professional experience; and a desire to learn the English language. A former experience of living abroad is a main factor in self-determination. The respondents would forgo emigration if they were able to get a well-paid job where they could realize themselves and enrich their knowledge and achieve professional promotion.
